Decolonial Encounters and the Geopolitics of Racial Capitalism

This conversation started in the summer of 2018 at the first Balkan Society for Theory and Practice workshop that took place in Prizren, Kosova. Scholars, activists, and artists came together to engage in a very much needed debate about the past, present, and future of anticapitalist politics, feminism, queer and trans studies, critical race theory, postcolonial and decolonial critique in the context of the post-socialist Balkan countries and former Eastern Europe. The idea for this tri-logue came out of late night and early morning conversations based on common concerns and collaborations that have taken various forms through years of exchange and engagement with one another. What follows is a discussion among the three of us based on the questions posed in the open call for this special issue Breaking with Transition: Decolonial and Postcolonial Perspectives in Eastern Europe. To articulate some critical points, we find it necessary to rethink the conflicts and tensions and to envisage important analytical turns and political tactics within our ongoing struggles against turbo-racializing capitalism.

Desuniversalizar el mundo

Seminario PEI Obert dirigido por Lucía Egaña

Los legados del colonialismo siguen afectando en múltiples aspectos a la sociedad contemporánea. Como una consecuencia colonial, la palabra sigue siendo hoy una propiedad privatizada por la blanquitud. La palabra y la razón se han regido por las epistemologías occidentales de personas blancas, y en ese sentido los discursos y prácticas están marcados de una forma violenta por su racismo universalizante. Por este motivo son necesarios espacios de disidencia y de resistencia en los que la palabra y la voz pertenezcan a personas no blancas y a epistemologías consideradas “otras” que, aun siendo ancestrales, han sido sistemáticamente silenciadas por la violencia colonial.

Genealogy of Amnesia: Rethinking the Past for a New Future of Conviviality

Posted · Add Comment

“Genealogy of Amnesia: Rethinking the Past for a New Future of Conviviality” is the title of an interdisciplinary, arts and theory based research project. It is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) through its Programme for Arts-based Research (PEEK). The project is led by Marina Gržinić and developed at the Studio of Conceptual Art (Post-Conceptual Art Practices), Institute for Fine Arts, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

The aim of “Genealogy of Amnesia: Rethinking the Past for a New Future of Conviviality” is to understand how processes of empowerment are built against the politics of collective forgetting and silence. The research is focussed on political, social, ideological, and cultural mechanisms that produce collective amnesia — such as antisemitism, racialization, political and economic dispossession, gender discrimination, or hegemonic nationalism.[…]
